Kelly wants Irish to enjoy success, stay focused
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame is posting some impressive numbers besides the zero at the end of its record and its No. 9 ranking.
The Fighting Irish defense hasn't given up a rushing touchdown, the 36 points it has allowed are the fewest in the opening four games for the school since 1975 and Notre Dame (4-0) is the only FBS team that has yet to trail in a game this season. Players say there is a sense of anticipation around campus.
Defensive end Stephon Tuitt says, "You can feel the energy."
Coach Brian Kelly wants the Irish to enjoy their best start in a decade, so long as they stay focused on what it's taken to get them there as they prepare to play Miami (4-1) at Soldier Field on Saturday night.
